Rafael Should Have Been Sent Off After Nani Red Card Says Graham Poll: The Nightly EPL

Former Premier League referee Graham Poll believes that Manchester United were lucky not to have Rafael da Silva sent off Tuesday night after Nani got red carded in the UEFA Champions League.

A few minutes after Nani received his marching orders, Poll argued that Rafael was fortunate to stay on the pitch after the ball hit his arm when a Real Madrid attempt on goal was blocked.

Poll also added that Rio Ferdinand could face disciplinary action after his sarcastic applause in front of referee Cuneyt Cakir when the match ended.

All in all, it was an ugly night for Manchester United despite a promising start. Now, though, you have to wonder whether tonight was the night when Mourinho sealed his fate as future United manager or closed the opportunity shut? What do you think?
